Book Description

"Can one man kill another and call it justice?" This question rings throughout this powerful, lost classic crime novel by former reporter and master storyteller Pfarrer. One fateful night brings together Shipman, a brilliant young black man mistakenly suspected of rape, and Temple, a hair-triggered, once-promising white cop. Temple's corrupt partners are willing to do anything to avoid blame for the unprovoked beating that kills Shipman. But can Temple escape what he's done?

The tragedy of that night echoes through a small mid-western town as Shipman's father looks for justice, or is it vengeance? To write No Blue-Eyed Devil, Pfarrer spent months riding with police officers through the rough neighborhoods in central Ohio. Available as an ebook for the first time, No Blue-Eyed Devil is a timeless literary fable that explores the racial divide with Biblical resonance—as well as a thrilling novel of crime and redemption. No Blue-Eyed Devil rivals the best work of Pete Dexter, Ed McBain, and Richard Price.
 
“A stunning achievement of the novelist’s craft.”
– Sidney Offit
 
“This is a story about aspiration, race, rage, and real life.”
– David B. Offer
 
“No Blue-Eyed Devil could be described as a crime novel, just as Homer’s Odyssey could be called a seafaring yarn.”
– Roberto Mighty
